Sounds like a good idea to me. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Don't spend the money on it. Just patent the idea and then sue however tries it. It worked for NTP and that small company that sued M$.

bad idea - turn it into a server instead - costs about the same (?) useability - a great deal better... though I appreciate you may wish to move it about - you could do this with a server anyway...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
